Private Contemporary Bathroom by Yuko Matsumoto

NKBA's 2012 Design Competition Winner: Large Bathroom - First Place

This soothing California spa-like bathroom goes beyond what's apparent in accommodating the homeowners' lifestyle. As part-time dog breeders, the clients wanted to reconfigure their disjointed master bath to something they and their pet dogs could both enjoy. The expansive space houses veterinary supplies, equipment, open flooring for a puppy whelping area, and hidden dog door to a kennel area.

Taking space from the rear yard wall, the designers removed a sunken hot tub and excessive glazing. The area was replaced with a bamboo veneer vanity and make-up work station with commercial style lighting and honed Caesarstone countertop. Underneath the sink, a door-less compartment holds towels and toiletries. Windows and a French door were also added, allowing easy outside access for the clients' pets.

Accents such as votives, small stone statues, wooden mats, and distinctive lighting draw attention to the display niches, toekick, and vanities and create a beautiful yet highly functional space. The natural palettes and soothing accents makes this bathroom a perfect retreat for both human and K-9.

Recieved additional award:
